Unlike the previous years, participants from different organisations/institutes will be allowed to form teams, paving the way for top programmers across the globe to come together and form cross-country teams.

The contest starts on May 20, 2017, with first online qualifier round, and concludes on July 1, 2017, with the Onsite Grand Finale in Directiplex, Mumbai.

Over time, SnackDown last year witnessed a total registration from 13,388 teams with 17,238 participants hailing from 2234 institutes spread across 96 countries. This year’s edition will see 25 international teams compete against each other and provide the 25 Indian teams a chance to be amongst the world’s best. To encourage programming amongst women as well as young school students, there are additional slots for 2 girls’ teams and 3 school teams, from India and one school team and one girls’ team internationally.

The registrations for the SnackDown 2017 will open on April 14, 2017, and will continue till May 23, 2017.
